I have determined that my interests would be better served going to Connecticon this year instead of Otakon. I'm a huge webcomic geek, and have been looking to C-con for the past few years as somewhere to go. This year I'm going to make it to Hartford.
I'll be buying my pre-reg this weekend, and looking into getting a hotel room as soon as I can. Whether I'll fly/drive/greyhound from Kansas is still undecided.
